Welcome to the first day of August! I am curious as to what the month will bring. So much has happened, both good and bad. Will things go backward? Forward? Or just keep plodding along? I think some new adventures await all of us. Some good and some bad. But it feels like mostly good.
I seem to have this fascination with the clouds and my camera. I’m not sure why. The colors can be rich and amazing but the varied forms that appear I think are what really attract me. There are the wispy wings that seem to float through the sky. There are the ones that tease you to figure out what they are trying to be before they change yet again. There are the ones that look like foamy bubble wrap. I could go on and on. I love to just sit and watch the clouds as they drift around, forming and reforming as they go.
But of course all this cloud watching doesn’t get a whole lot of writing done. Still it helps my mind lose the tension and start to let go and drift, usually losing the tension. I find that I don’t get much done when I cloud watch and that is ok. It is something that I can use to distract myself from everything. And sometimes when I need to not be focused ideas will come and then I can write.
When I worked at the lot I can remember many a morning that I would go and pull out my phone and take photos of the morning sky. Even in the cold. The colors would be shades of soft sherbet or bright and fierce drawing my attention. Here are some of my favorites from the past few days.
This will be a short one today. Thanks to everyone for all the support and for reading! Stay safe!
